Amazing flavours and exquisite food - I wish I had my camera to take pictures of the presentation.

My family dines at the Pear Tree on all of our special occasions. We have never been disappointed. The service is excellent and every meal has been enjoyable. When we have gone, I have always felt welcome and have left with a smile on my face. I particularly love the scallops and creme brulee.

Small intimate incredible. Only about a dozen tables but what food, service and experience. Heard of this place from 1001 places to dine at. My table had Lobster foam, scallops and bacon risotto (awesome) beef tenderloin with off the bone beef rib (melt in your mouth) and chocolate ganache. The service was spot on very knowledgable. Just a dining treat.... More

I love this restaurant! The creme brûlée is the best! I have been here several times and always enjoy the dinner and fine service. We like to celebrate special occasions here.

The Pear Tree is one of the last true fine dining experiences in Metro Vancouver. Perfect for alone, dates, or special occasions. The food is nothing short of spectacular and the staff doesn't disappoint. The only word I could use to further describe the Pear Tree and the experience you will have there is: perfect.

It was my wife's B-day dinner with friends last night. I had the Orange Carmelized scallops on double smoked bacon risotto as the appetizer and the Lois Lakesteelhead as the main while my wife had the Witloof salad and the full sized scallops on bacon risotto plate. The scallops were great but that risotto was so tasty! It reminded me... More

I was taken to the Pear Tree for my birthday and I must say, it was probably the best meal I have ever had. The Lobster Cappuccino was so frothy and tasty. The Maple Hills Chicken was lovely, especially the little duck bits! The Crème Brulee was not as good as I would have expected but none the less was... More

I had a testing menu here some five years back - during the Vancouver Olympics. I was, at the time, a vegetarian, and the staff were extremely accommodating. The starter soup - tomato - was the brothiest, most tomatoey, silky soup I've ever had. The gnocci they made me I still dream about. I've never had a comparable gnocci -... More

White linen table cloths in an intimate dining room with friendly servers and a small yet quality menu. Top class!
